Well located in the heart of Recoleta, you can have a decent lunch or dinner without spending tourist prices. The food is home made. The wine by the glass was good and my ravioli stuffed with prawns and salmon were fine.

........that never serves you? I don't like to slam restaurants on TripAdvisor. However, this one deserves comment. We walked in and sat down during lunch. Place had a few servers and a disinterested guy at the till. We waited for a few minutes. No contact. OK, I go up and grab a few menus. Sit back down. Staff congregated at... More

We stayed close to this small restaurant/pasteleria. We visited the place times. The chicken roll, the chicken sesame salad, the chicken grill, the pork plate, the pizza, the banana smoothie, the hot chocolate, the coffee and the patties were exceptional. The wait staff at first was not as friendly, but by the second time they were gracious, friendly and we... More

We all know the place is expensive. Bu then staff should be superb, and the girls are just fine. Only the male waiter is superb, and he walks around, checking whether you need something else.

The service was awful. When they did bring us dinner it consisted of spaghetti with what can only be described as ketchup. Oh, and it was really overpriced. The patio is very nice but this is not a place to go for dinner.

This restaurant is next of what it used to be a rather fancy women school of Buenos Aires. The patio is nice and quiet in the middle of a busy city. The portions are small and prices on the expensive side. Desserts are excellent. There were mainly women customers when we went (I think that I was the only male... More

Como en Casa is really sandwich shop. Lots of people grabbing a quick lunch, including mom's with kids, students in uniform. It's inexpensive, food is okay and it's quick. The young women servers seem as though they're probably students too, very chatty, particularly together!

Staying in Retiro

Neighbourhood Profile
Retiro
Exquisite palaces and luxurious apartment buildings combine with art galleries and exclusive boutiques to make Retiro the perfect spot for those who enjoy sophistication. However, the non-stop foot traffic to and from Retiro train and bus terminals, accompanied by the myriad of trucks leaving and arriving at the port, mean this neighbourhood is never truly at rest. One minute you are walking down a street dotted with ornate mansions and luxurious shop windows and the next you find yourself surrounded by a sea of people racing to catch their train or bus. It is this juxtaposition of never-ending comings and goings and quiet, elegant luxury that defines Retiro, as well as Buenos Aires, a city where sharp contrasts are all around.
